We have added the Francis Cooke volume to the searchable database of authenticated Mayflower Pilgrim genealogies, Mayflower Families Fifth Generation Descendants, 1700-1880. This update adds 490 pages, 9,600 records, and over 28,000 searchable names in the following volume:

  • Cooke, Francis (Vol. 12)

This database is being constructed from the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) very well-known series of books Mayflower Families Through Five Generations: Descendants of the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth, Mass., December 1620 which document the first generation of descendants of the Pilgrims. Through our partnership with GSMD, American Ancestors is delivering this database with a full index of the fifth-generation descendants, and their children, coupled with the page images for those people.

Francis Cooke was born around 1583. He married Hester Mahieu in 1603 and had 7 children. Francis took his oldest son John with him on Mayflower, while Hester and the other children followed them to America in 1623 on the ship Anne. Francis died in 1663 in Plymouth. This biography is also available on our Mayflower 2020 site here.

This database index includes birth, baptism, marriage, death, and deed records for these individuals, and where available, the names of parents and spouses. We thank our volunteers for all their efforts in bringing this newly searchable data to you!

This update is made possible by the invaluable efforts of our growing team of volunteers, including; Nancy Borman, Nell Nies, Lisa Roberts, Nancy Washell, Ron Wilson, and David Anderson. We genuinely appreciate their dedication. If you are interested in joining the team, please contact Bianca Renzoni, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator
